The Harry A. Metcalf Computational Laboratory

The Harry A. Metcalf Computational Laboratory (HAMCL), in Glennan room 422 has been renovated to a state-of-the-art computer classroom, through the generous gift of Sylvia Lissa to honor her late husband Harry A. Metcalf who graduated from Case School of Applied Science with a bachelors of science in Mechanical Engineering class of 1903.

The Harry A. Metcalf Computational Laboratory offers 28 Dell Pentium IV computers ranging from 2.5 to 3.4GHz, running Windows XP Professional attached to 3 Dell dual processor servers, running Windows NT 4.0 Server or Windows Server 2003, via local area network running at 1Gb/s. The computer lab also offers 29 UTP connections for Laptops running at 10/100 Mb/s.

The Harry A. Metcalf Computational Laboratory provides access to a number of software packages. Some of these include SolidWorks 2008 SP4.0; Abaqus CAE 6.8 for FEA; Microsoft Visual C++; MatLab 2008A; Microsoft Office 2007 Professional; Mathematica 6.0.1; MathType 6.0; and LabView 8.5. All of the laboratory’s computers are directly linked to the campus network giving students access to a large variety of software on different libraries across campus. The lab is open for student use 24 hours a day 7 days a week via card access.
